LRE is seeking attorney volunteers for its annual Mock Trial Programs, which teach middle and high school students about the legal system through trial role playing. Attorney judges are needed to score the competitions, and attorney coaches are needed to help prepare the teams. The fall 2014 Middle School Regional Competitions are: Nov. 8 (Coastal and Piedmont) and Nov. 15 (Lowcountry and Midlands). All attorney volunteers earn pro bono credit for their hours dedicated to the Mock Trial Program. Click here for the sign-up form or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
